There are currently 11.9 million Eros STX Global shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 30.4% up from 9.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Eros STX Global shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Eros STX Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Eros STX Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Eros STX Global shares traded daily (recently around 3.3 million). Eros STX Global's SIR currently stands at 3.65. In other words for every 100,000 Eros STX Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3650 shares are currently held short.

However Eros STX Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Eros STX Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable Eros STX Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Eros STX Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Eros STX Global shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0864% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Eros STX Global shares, roughly 86 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Eros STX Global.
